Adaptations you would like to write
 
Assassin's Creed flopped like so many video game adaptations before it and I'm sure it won't be the last. With Uncharted and Metal Gear Solid on the horizon I find myself conflicted. These are games that I love but these ones specifically are so cinematic that a film is not only pointless but loses something in the transition. A case could be made for using films to draw eyes to the original games but I suffered through the Max Payne film.

I think other games can benefit from adaptation though due to exposure and actual benefits that a film would have over the game. With that in mind what games would you personally like to adapt and why?

For me I think there are astounding films to be made out of To the Moon, Hotline Miami and Monkey Island. The fact that none of these exist let alone even thought of by the powers that be beggars belief. You could print money with a Monkey Island film.

Others lend themselves to TV. Expanding Mass Effect into a long running series is a no brainer. Mortal Kombat has such a rich mythology that deserves to be explored in a big budget series. Both of those would be huge hits if given the proper care.

And finally I'd love the Zero Escape series as an anime.

Far Cry 3 and 4 and smother all memory of the movie that was Far Cry

I think Vaas would be more fun

You could definitely make good films out of them. My issue with both games is that they had great openings and then it becomes standard Ubisoft fare. I feel 3 would probably have the better chance of getting made for Vaas alone.

Pong.

There's so much back and forth - lots of reversals. Clear, simple goal.

I'd do it in black and white. :D

For me, it would be Suikoden. I love that RPG series.

Halo.

I went through a bunch of thought exercises with that one and I'm pretty sure I could put together a really kick ass script based on the original video game.

I'd be amazed if anyone on here knows it but there was a game years ago called ANOTHER WORLD (I think it was OUT OF THIS WORLD in the UK).
it's the most atmospheric, poetic and weirdly moving story I've seen told in a videogame.
that would be my vote for videogame adaptation.
oh and THE NOMAD SOUL but that felt like a movie anyway.
ironically I thought the Blade Runner videogame was a better sequel to the original movie than the Vileneuve flick, but there you go

I'd love to see some old school point and click adventures adapted to film: Broken Sword, Full Throttle, The Dig etc

I'm surprised no one mentioned GTA. You could argue the Fast and Furious series is a GTA writ large.
